About the program

This civics and citizenship program offers Year 12 student leaders the opportunity to develop their knowledge of our system of government and parliamentary proceedings, and the role of the Governor of NSW.

The program, which is held on six specific dates set by the Governor in collaboration with the Parliament, includes a visit to Government House, a meeting with the Governor and a visit to the Parliament of NSW and a meeting with the member of the school’s electorate. In addition, the program is held on sitting days to facilitate members being able to engage with students from their electorates.  All schools in NSW are invited on an allocated date. Schools are asked to nominate two school leaders/captains.

Schools are invited to the program in their electorates across 6 allocated dates. Schools will receive an invitation usually in February of each school year.

When: Between March and June each year

Where: The Parliament of NSW and Government House

Time: 10 am – 4 pm
